Brazilian-born Cacau became eligible to play for Germany just last year. His 70th minute goal helped seal a 4-0 World Cup win over Australia Sunday

After Germany’s squashing of the Socceroos today, we finally have our first World Cup blowout. Through the first seven games of this year’s tournament, not one game had more than two total goals, and all but one were either tied or decided by one goal. Hopefully this result might convince some that Soccer can indeed be (relatively) high-scoring. Germany was expected to win this game, but not this easily, and after Ghana took care of Serbia earlier in the day, Germany should now have no trouble winning the group.

I’ll admit this was a bit of a useless article, but the headline (takes a traditional Australian chant, and alters it with a Jewish expression, ironic for reasons that should be clear) was too good to pass up. I also found it amusing that Germany was helped out by someone (Cacau, picture above) who only became a “German citizen” a little over a year ago. It reminds me of when Mike Piazza played for Greece in the 2004 Athens Olympics, despite never having lived there.

Stay tuned for more World Cup updates over the next few days.
